The Work of WHO in the South-East Asia Region, 2008
Other Titlesreport of the Regional Director, 1 July 2007 - 30 June 2008
AbstractLooking back at WHO's work in the South-East Asia Region in the 60th anniversary of WHO's existence, remarkable achievements in the area of disease control, family and community health, healthy environments and health system development are observed. These achievements could not have been made without close collaboration with Member countries and all partners in health at the country, regional and global levels. This Report describes and analyses the outcomes of WHO's work and its impact on countries' capacity, and underscores key challenges and priorities for each area of work. In each area, it briefly describes the current health situation, and key strategy/policy changes that occurred during the review period and which address challenges in health. The Report also serves as a useful information product, for our partners and others interested in health development, on WHO's work and future priorities in the Region. Although the Report covers a period of one year, the principles of continuity, sustainability and follow-up of important outcomes have been emphasized.
